Julie Reiss

To increase students’ mastery of reading, writing, speaking, and critical thinking skills, Ms. Reiss and a team of colleagues will participate in professional development led by Maryellen Moreau and purchase materials to implement Story Grammar Marker by MindWing. Teachers and speech language pathologists will utilize a research based literacy program to assist students in learning how to verbally tell stories and ultimately create their own written narratives. Teachers and students will use visuals and manipulatives to gain a deeper understanding of the components of a cohesive story.
